A new low in liberal/leftist/"progressive" discourse

A college newspaper in Fort Collins, Colorado, recently had the following to say:

Aside from the fact that President Bush had as much to do with the Florida taser incident as he had to do with what I had for breakfast, this so-called "editorial" shows that the leftists of America have nothing to say. Literally. They have nothing to say but to emit an incoherent temper tantrum. They exist at this point merely to scream and stamp their feet like little children. They run around calling anyone that disagrees with their antiquated socialist anti-American politics a "liar". And I am not exaggerating. The leaders of the New Left, the Democrats running for President, all called General Petraeus a liar, they refused to denounce the ad from MoveOn calling him a "betrayer". It is clear where their loyalties lie.

The fact that Bush elicits this kind of outrage from leftist idiots is, frankly, to be considered a point in his favor.

Some people think the socialist ideology is dead, and no longer a threat. I disagree. These people are so low, the only place lower for them to go is violence.

Are we looking at a re-run of the 1960's "protests" where unbathed, stoned hippies routinely threw rocks at police and rioted for no reason?

I sure hope so. We have plenty of jail space for them now.

Murder in the US

In 2011, I calculate the overall US murder rate as 4.6 per 100,000 population.

But if you recalculate this, and assumed that black men murdered at the same rate as everyone else, the overall rate would drop to 1.9 out of 100,000 population. That would give the United States the 147th highest murder rate in the world - or, the 60th best.

The insane disproportionate murder rate among US blacks is why the overall US murder rate seems so high.

I don't understand why liberals refuse to talk about this. I don't understand why blacks refuse to talk about this. Blacks are just as often the victim as the offender - almost SIXTY PERCENT of murder victims in the US are black. Shouldn't they care about this? Where are Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to talk about this? Yet they are silent.

And it's not like this is any secret. This culture of violence, abuse of women, and plain thuggery is paraded around daily in pop music. It's glorified on TV shows like "The Wire…

The Root of Violent Extremism

We are too flippant about writing off violent extremists as "crazy", "psychopathic", etc.

Just because *we* have a hard time conceiving of doing violence to others, does not mean that those who do are insane.

Hitler was not insane. Hitler was evil. There is a distinction.

To be insane, to be "crazy", means you cannot understand the difference between right and wrong.

People like Hitler, like ISIS, these people are *evil*. They have, in what they believe to be a rational process, *chosen* to embrace a death-worshipping morality.

Such thinking is going to lead us down wrong alleys in dealing with violent political extremism.

Unless we understand the various reasons why such people embrace philosophies of death, we cannot combat the root causes and defeat violent extremism.

Obama's "they need jobs" is a juvenile approach at this. But you simply cannot ignore and dismiss the reality of life in the countries that are the flash-points of extremism…

Is Government "just the name we give to things we do together"?

"Government is just the name we give to the things we do together." Well, no. This is a truly deceptive statement. Because look here, there are many, many human institutions where people get together to do things. Churches.
Families. And these all have their own unique characteristics. If government was simply a variety of these, or vice-versa, why would we bother to have a unique word for it? If government were *merely* a charity, wouldn't we just call it a charity? What is it about government then that makes it unique? I'll tell you. It's the use of force. Government is the sole human institution that legitimately exercises physical force against others. Churches don't commit violence. Corporations don't use physical coercion to get you to buy their products or to work for them. Families don't (shouldn't) do that. BECAUSE government's essence is the use of force, government simply should not do many things, eve…
